so i’ve had my WD essencial mybook 500gb drive for a few months now. im using it mostly for media storage (movies, music, pictures,etc…) so far i havent had any issues on it. its formatted fat32, but i’ve read everywhere that when an external drive is formatted fat32 it wont/cant transfer files over 2 or 4 gb, i forgot which. but i have stuff in there thats 8 and 16gb.
my question is, will this fat32 affect my hdd in the long run? would it been a better choice to format to ntfs? oh by the way i do stream all the things in my external drive to watch on my tv.
